Sagging skin is a common part of getting older. As we age, collagen levels within the skin begin to break down. This process creates looser skin and – when combined with the pull of gravity – creates the kind of sagging skin that can make you look older than you actually are.
In previous years, the only option for tightening sagging skin was surgery; more specifically, a traditional facelift procedure. However, recent advances in technology have made it possible for patients to get great results from non-surgical treatments, like Ultherapy.
So what exactly is Ultherapy – and how can it tighten sagging skin?
Ultherapy is an FDA-approved ultrasound treatment that penetrates the skin to tighten and tone the deepest dermis layer. By targeting the foundational layer of the dermis, Ultherapy creates more noticeable and long-term results. While the results won’t be like a traditional facelift procedure, Ultherapy can help with common aging symptoms like:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Loose and sagging facial skin
- Bags around the mouth and eyes
- Loose neck skin
You’ll typically need about 2 to 3 Ultherapy treatments in order to see your best results. Each treatment usually takes about 60-90 minutes to administer. Final results are usually seen within 2 to 3 months after your last procedure. Ultherapy is a long-term solution for sagging skin; however, patients with severe wrinkles and sagging skin may find better results from a traditional facelift.
